The Amalekites came and attacked the Israelites at Rephidim. Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.”
So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill. As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset. So Joshua overcame the Amalekite army with the sword.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this on a scroll as something to be remembered and make sure that Joshua hears it, because I will completely blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven.”
Moses built an altar and called it The Lord is my Banner. | Exodus 17:8-15
“I am the life giver, and I am the answer to any problem or difficulty that you may be facing. Come to Me all who are weary, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28). Come, drink of My living waters, and you shall thirst no more (John 4:14).
“Fix your eyes on Me, My Beloved, and not your problems. For I am the answer, your all sufficient One, and your ever present help in times of need (Psalm 46:1). Refuse to give into worry or fear, rather receive My peace that surpasses all understanding. Be confident that I am Jehovah Nissi, the Lord your Banner. Surely My banner over you is VICTORY,” declares the Lord!
